The second one could probably be achieved with 3rd party tools already. The best one I can think of would be IFTTT. Each category has an RSS feed, therefore if RSS feed gets updated. Send email. Full IFTTT support would be great, I'm not sure how that would work, but being able to set up that sort of thing would be bloody brilliant. Maybe even baked into nodebb, so we can set up "tasks" similar to how stamplay.com works. Just with a betteR UI.
Is there a way to send an email to all members?
I am looking for a way to occasionally send a nicely formatted email to all members. I'd like to use it for sending important announcements or a monthly curated newsletters of some sort. I was thinking it would be really awesome if there was a way to send the content of a post via email to everyone on the forum. Is that currently possible? If not, can this be done via a plugin?
If you have mailgun plugin and the mailgun account you can download a .csv file of all your members.
Use that with mailgun and send a mass email through them.
Something similar to ^ would work well.
@Scuzz cool! I did not know. That does not look too bad.
Still, it would be nice if this function was built right into nodebb. So an admin could "compose" a message or just send out the OP on a topic as an email.
Just export your contacts to csv, then use that.
Good! And else "mandrill-blast-online": https://github.com/akhoury/akhoury.github.io/tree/master/pages/mandrill-blast
